Washington Will Honor FL Non Residdnt Permit
I heard from the Florida Issuing Authority this morning. Washington will honor the FL Resident and Non Resident Permits/Licenses. I donít' have the whole story and will most likely never know the whole story. But from what I have heard from 3 sources is that the Washington AG received many emails and phone calls asking why they would not honor the FL non resident permit. That there is nothing in Washington law saying they shouldn't. Etc Etc. So they changed their stance.
This shows that by just asking questions about their decisions and why they made such decisions can get them to look at things from another point of view.
I have no proof of the statement I am about to make but this is what I think happened.
Someone in the AG's office made this decision without any discussion with his/her superiors and that is the word that got out. When the questions started coming in they really didn't know what was going on and started checking and someone (I believe it was the AG) stated this was not what their law states and changed their official opinion.
Again Washington AG's Office states it will honor FL non resident permits and the FL official website states that the Florida Non Resident permit is valid in Washington. Thank Goodness.
